In November 2014, Prof AJ van der Walt and Dr Reghard Brits (postdoc) spent two weeks in Europe for a brief research visit to Dr Lars van Vliet at Maastricht University in the Netherlands, and to attend two conferences in Bielefeld, Germany and Edinburgh, Scotland respectively. In Bielefeld, a conference entitled “Understanding Southern Welfare – The B(R)ICS Countries” was hosted by the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research (ZiF). Prof Van der Walt, along with Dr Sue-Mari Viljoen (Unisa) presented a paper entitled “Land rights and social welfare: South Africa”. The second conference – the annual meeting of the Ius Commune Research School – was hosted by the Edinburgh Law School, where Prof Van der Walt delivered a keynote address titled “Sharing servitudes”.
